The Gowanus of the Future
February 26th, 2008

Curbed has the details of the two new proposals for the development of the Carroll Gardens/Gowanus area in Brooklyn. Each plan calls for 700 new apartments, retail stores and nearly 90,000 square feet of parkland on what is now a toxic, trash-strewn canal bank. The clean-up is scheduled to begin next summer, and planners hope to have people living in the newly constructed (and better smelling) neighborhood by 2012.

(For more on the possible pitfalls to the develoment, including environmental hazards, see “The Race to Develop a Toxic Waterway” by Tom Angotti.)
